Load Bearing walls?????
Want to do some remodelling in my house and would like to know whether the walls that I would like to remove are load bearing or not. How do I tell whether they are or not?

Generally 2 points to look at. One is there wall directly above it and 2 is there support or a beam below it that sits on the foundation. Not infallible but generally a good indication.
